Examples.
Remarks.In cooling, the rivet exerts great grip on the
plate, giving frictional strength to the joint, but caulking
diminishes this, so it is not allowed for. Rivets over 6" long
.would break in cooling, so must be hammered up cold.
The formula for boiler strength, j)tons rjt 17, can now be used
to better advantage, Construct.a table shewing t and?; tinder
all conditions, and after finding t x 77 from the formula, choose
such values of each as will meet the case when multiplied. Such
a table precedes this page, where the pitch has been taken at its
theoretical value; but must" be decreased to secure staunchness
where necessary, as with the thinner plates in the last column.
The efficiency table is not from practical tests ^ but jrom p, 4.07

Something between (3) and (4) would have to be adopted ; say
(4) with -J" plate and spacing like (3) for staunchness.

connected with double butt straps. Determine dimensions and
efficiency. (Hons, Mach, Constr. Exam., 1893.)
